Cab Counselor

Repair relationships by giving sensible advice to your taxi passengers.

How to Play

Couples who are having a hard time hire you, Cab Counselor, for advice! It's up to you to deduce the root problem in their relationship and offer a corresponding solution.

Hover over each passenger. They will tell you some things about their partner. One trait from each of them will be incompatible with each other. Identify these two traits and suggest a course of action to resolve the conflict.

If you choose the right solution, the relationship is repaired! The couples will let you know how you did by leaving a review on your phone. How many couples can you help go the distance?

Game Jam Info

This game was created in under 48 hours for the Global Game Jam. The theme was "Repair". We focused on two ideas: repairing relationships, and the fact that repairing doesn't always mean going back to the way things used to be.

Global Game Jam always has a number of optional challenges. We completed one:

Native Sound — You can hear music inspired by ragtime and hip-hop on the radio
